How to hang a picture (Page 2)


Step 5. Measure the width of the frame and divide that number by 2--this is the center of your frame. On the tape, mark the proposed center of the frame, and then mark the edge of the frame the calculated distance on each side. If possible, align the frame so that the three points are near your scud marks.

 

Step 6. Measure down 8” from the frame side marks for the D-ring placement. If studs are not avail able, drive self-tapping hollow wall anchors into the holes (as shown), and then drill a screw into each anchor. If studs are available, drill wood screws directly into the studs.

 

Step 7. Slip the D-rings or picture hooks over the screws on the wall. Your picture should now be straight and secure with nary an extra hole to repair.

 

 

QUICK FIX

Putting a felt pad at each corner of a frame helps it hang straight and keeps it from marking the walls. If you don’t have any on hand, don’t despair: Silicone caulk will do the trick quite nicely. Put a dot of caulk (about the diameter of a pencil eraser) on each corner. As soon as the caulk dries, you’re good to go.
